“Making a Mark”, Through Feb. 22nd

Making a Mark Headline Photos from the Show                                                                          The Details
The History of drawing and painting began with someone making a mark. The cave man found something to make a mark on the wall to record the season for hunting. The artist at the easel is first making a mark. It may be a drawn mark with a pencil, pen or pastel or painted with watercolor, acrylic or oil paint. The need is the same through history, the artist records his or her moment either looking at something or letting the mind search through ideas. The Marks reveal an idea for others to see and share. The time spent by the artist making a mark is important to viewers in history as someone will always be able to respond to the marks that were made. Continue reading
